. >> steve: it's cuba. at this time of year it's beautiful down there. >> gretchen: president obama just laid out his plans yesterday in las vegas to fix a broken immigration system. but the specifics could put him on a collision course now with congress. or will it? peter doocy live in washington with all the details. good morning to you. >> good morning. and there are a few big differences between what the president wants to do to reform immigration and what a bipartisan group of u.s. senators wants to do and a big one revolves around the pathway to citizenship. president obama yesterday during the first trip of his second term told a crowd in las vegas that the process for illegal aliens to become u.s. citizens should be a fast one. >> yes, they broke the rules. they crossed the border illegally. maybe they i don't have stayed their visas. those are the facts. nobody disputes them. but these 11 million men and women are now here. many of them have been here for years. >> but the senate plan, which president obama applauded but did not endorse since it hasn't been written yet, calls for sec
new member of president obama's second cabinet to officially be installed. hillary clinton does not step down till friday. on her final days some on capitol hill are not holding back in criticism. lindsey graham said in his view secretary clinton got away with murder with the attack on benghazi. that's far from the only issue that will be keeping john kerry busy as hillary clinton leaves the state department. jill dougherty sat down with secretary clinton. >> reporter: as secretary of state hillary clinton prepares to leave office, the country that once was a beacon of hope for democratic transition, egypt, is wracked with turmoil. the head of the army warning the state could collapse. >> i hope not because i think that would lead to incredible chaos and violence on a scale that would be devastating for egypt and the region, but there has to be some understanding by the new government that the aspirations that the people were expressing during the revolution in egypt have fwoe taken seriously. >> reporter: and if there's one lingering question about her tenure, it's the murder o
's for a comprehensive immigration bill so maybe he's told his friends at fox to stand down on this. we'll see. but it's really -- it is sad that people, you know, make every single thing is about -- is it good for barack obama? i have to say when john boehner the speaker said well, i hope the president doesn't push this bill to the left and make it impossible. i mean why doesn't he just say isn't it great we're on the same page. we have an issue. it is challenging. it is going to be tough but let's all work together. oh no. the president should just be quiet. that's his message. well, i know the president will not be quiet. the president is going to hold our feet to the fire. we'll get this done. >> stephanie: i agree with you. i don't care why they do it. they tend to blurt things out like we need to get the latino vote back. that's the point -- something you're not supposed to say. >> i couldn't believe it. i had to shake my head when john mccain said on national news, you know, it's the latino vote. as if the latinos aren't listening to this. >> stephanie: they have some sort of different hearing
to dance. don't put him on the spot. >> have you heard from president obama? have you heard from -- >> no? not yet? >> why don't all of you get down here with him. >> we'll dance with you. come on. show us something. >> side kick has one. >> do you know the squirrel dance? >> no. >> get a little wiggle in your video. can you show us that? okay. >> awesome. >> there we go. >> there you go. >> no, no, no. >> i love some of the lines in this video. he says, i'm not in a party. i am a party. >> you remember that. >> brad, did he come up with those lines or did you help him with that? >> that was him because i was -- all the people were sending e-mails. you could ask a question to the president and everybody wanted to know what political party he was in. i was trying to explain to him, okay, republicans, then there's democrats, independents. he got really distracted and bored and he was like, i'm not in a party, i am a party. >> there you go. >> way better than anything i would have ever said. >> when did it explode for you? you made it originally just for your family. now 4 million hits later
. >> yeah, i don't either. i don't know how she passes on and turns the people down that want her to. >> how close to the surface is it as the father of daughters, i very much want her to run. the iconography if i of president obama is a success and even her run in 2008 was hugely important. how clear is she about her potentially historic role and the fact that as a woman she would become so important? >> it's part of the fabric of her life. she connects on that level in every single place she's visited, you know, 12 corrupts and almost a million miles. she always does a town hall meeting or a meeting with women. it's part of who she is, and she feels that historic role. i think when you look at it as a pragmatic political fact of life for democrats, notwithstanding the extraordinary role that will joe biden has played and continues to play as the partner to the president, this would be the one way to, after eight years of the obama administration, to be historic and somewhat of an outsider and a break-through candidate, and it would be one way to run against some new fresh blood in the repu
